A little bit of fun!

25 Oct

I posted a video of myself dancing with a friend of mine earlier this week on my YouTube page.

I met my friend Francy by chance after a dance class and she wanted to know if we could do a quick, impromptu video together so she could put it on her Facebook fan page(she’s one of the most well known salsa dancers and instructors in Cali). Never one to disappoint a beautiful woman, I agreed and this was the result.

I decided to add it as a post on the blog to help reiterate a point I made in an earlier post about how to improve your dancing.

I made the point that video taping yourself dancing is a great way to take note of two things:

  • how much you have improved, and
  • what you need to work on

It’s not something that we think of doing all that often because we don’t want people to think we’re vain but making videos of yourself dancing is the only way you can see what other people see when you dance and show you all the parts of your dance that you need to improve on.

This is really important when you think about it because although you may think you’re dancing like this…

Do you think you’re a Michael Jackson or…

… you may in fact be dancing like this…

…a McLovin (do you really want to take the risk?).

Bear that in mind the next time your practicing and then grab your camera and find out for certain whether you’re an MJ or a McLovin. There’s a pretty big difference! Probably best you find out sooner rather than later 😉 .

Put your camera to good use!

Keep dancing.

      Seriously? There’s very little nudity in it! I wonder why they’d block it?
      Did you try viewing it on the youtube page?

    Just watched this again Richie, what caught me was your lack of eye contact with your partner, has this improved????
    Got to look at the ladies (especially when they are good looking)

      You’re right Dave, I’m embarrassed to say that I still need to work on this one! I really don’t get why it freaks me out so much!
